Nancy Pelosi, the former Speaker of the House from California, was giving a speech at the Oxford Union on Thursday when activists supporting Palestine interrupted her.

The video footage depicts a student approaching the podium where Pelosi was situated, while brandishing a Palestinian flag in her presence.

The demonstrator maintained a state of silence while Pelosi proceeded with her address and security personnel approached.

Youth Demand, a leading organization, criticized Pelosi’s Benazir Bhutto Memorial Lecture at the Oxford Union.

“Warmongers like Nancy Pelosi are not welcome on University campuses. When children are being murdered, and hospitals are being bombed, we will not sit down and be quiet whilst these people are given platforms. We must stand up and take action, because we aren’t f‑‑‑ing around anymore.” the group wrote in a social media post glorifying the incident.

Benazir Bhutto held the position of prime minister of Pakistan during two separate periods: the late 1980s and the mid-1990s.

Bhutto, the inaugural female prime leader of a Muslim country, was slain in 2007 when an assailant discharged a firearm and triggered a suicide explosive device subsequent to a political gathering.

Annually, the Oxford Union organizes a memorial talk to remember Bhutto.

Pro-Palestinian demonstrations have occurred on various college campuses in the United States this week.

Arrests have been made at Columbia University and University of Texas at Austin, as pro-Palestinian sit-ins persist as colleges struggle to balance free expression with preserving campus order and addressing allegations of antisemitism.
